Becoming a Member

There are three ways you can become a member.

  1. First, you automatically become a member when you join an existing pastel society that is already an IAPS Member Society. To locate a society near you go to Find a Society page.

  2. If you do not live near a pastel society you can join any pastel society you wish from our Society Directory page .

  3. You can become an IAPS member by starting a new pastel society and applying for membership with the IAPS Member Chair. When the Society has been accepted as an IAPS Member then all of your individual members automatically become IAPS members.

    If you are interested in starting a new pastel society the following page outlines the process.
